Several evenings ago, I was sitting in my t.v. room when I heard a noise from a distance in the bathroom. I have heard the rattle several times in the past. It was a mouse caught in a trap!

It doesn't happen often in my big, old farm home. But it can and does. Not uncommon to catch a mouse or two this time of year, as the weather turns chillier and the little culprits are looking for shelter. I keep traps set in several places to ward off any invasions.

For a period of time, I heard the struggle continue. as the critter worked hard to get free.

I couldn't help but think of us as we get 'caught' in the trap of the evils of the world; of our own sins and poor decisions.

Like my small furry friend, we struggle to get free. We can't! But at just the right time, Jesus comes and frees us from what can be our temporary snare, if we but look to Him for His help!

"We have escaped like a bird from the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth."
~ Psalm 124:7 & 8 NIV

"You shall know the truth
and the Truth will set you free."

~ John 8:32 LAB
